Reflections and Resolutions

Friday, May 25, 2018
I actually typed this out to myself in the beginning of the year, but I thought I'll make it public now just as a reminder to those that might have given up on their new year resolution.
Resolution doesn't have to start in the beginning of the year; 
it can start whenever you want.

Very VERY late with this new year post, but I just wanted to have some time to reflect and think about what happened in 2017 and what I want to do in 2018. I was busy traveling in the beginning of the year so I haven't really had time to sit and think and write.

For me 2017 started out strong and then it went downhill. I was not in the best place towards the end of the year. From what I remembered, I don't think I made any solid resolutions for 2017 because I really did not think it was going to be "MY" year which I am 100% okay with. Each year cannot BE the year; however, my hope are up for 2018. Not sure if it'll be my year, but I think it'll be a good one.

The main thing I'm looking forward to for 2018 is to be more ME. Cliche, but the good type of cliche.

I realized that I try too hard to "fit in" the norm and I'm not sure why?? Well, I think I know why, but that's a whole other topic so I won't talk about it too much here. Maybe in a future post.

I want to step out of my comfort zone more and do things I've been afraid of doing.

I also want to stop being a people pleaser all the time and figure out when to draw the line. I need to stop taking other people in consideration all the time because not everybody deserves my consideration and my empathy. It's exhausting and not everyone will appreciate my efforts.

I want to start living MY life and not the life that others portray onto me. I want to create my own happiness instead of relying on other people for my happiness.

So yeah.
I realized that all these wants will only be wants if I don't get out of my comfort zone and believe in myself.
I have a lot to work on.

It's going to be tough, but this is what I want to focus on this year.

Edit: I went back to my 2016 Rewind and realized that my resolution was to be more consistent for 2017, and I think I accomplished that. I posted a new blog post almost every month and that for me is definitely an improvement. i also posted at least one photo a day on Instagram which is pretty great, too. I guess I didn't do so bad haha.
